Actually, it's barely the same thing.  It appears that qrunner gets run
as user 'list' out of the mailman init script, but all other Mailman
components are owned by root, group list, albeit all the executables
have group execute enabled.

I've twisted Mailman 2 in a number of ways, including integrating the
namazu list search tool with it for my servers.  I'll probably install
it from source, as I've done previously, and run with it that way.  It
may make for more maintenance work later, but the initial installation
will probably be easier, and it's only one of very many pieces on a new
server which need to be hammered into shape.
